burnett all but a done deal

shows you what i know. i wrote just this morning that burnett's agent doesn't seem to realize his client ain't a-gonna get 5 guaranteed years, and no way would jocketty cave in to his amateurish tactics.
ummm . . . . . brian walton is reporting at the birdhouse that burnett has agreed to terms with the cardinals, and he thinks it's a 5-yr guaranteed deal.
my man hawg wild, who is down in dallas at the winter meetings, has essentially the same information. he isn't sure about the 5th year but is trying to confirm; he says don't order your burnett jersey until there's a press release on cardinal letterhead, but the deal is basically done.

the 'hawg wild' character referenced used to run a pretty good cardinals web site (might even be a member here?) and seems to be pretty reliable.
i'd bet that the 5th year wont be guaranteed but would be easily obtainable via a vesting option.
